Product Name Beetroot Red
Synonyms Beet Red, BETANIN
Definition Beet red is obtained from the roots of natural strains of red beets ( Beta vulgaris L. var. rubra) by pressing crushed beet as press juice or by aqueous extraction of shredded beet roots and subsequent enrichment in the active principle. The colour is composed of different pigments all belonging to the class betalaine. The main colouring principle consists of betacyanins ( red) of which betanin accounts for 75—95% . Minor amounts of betaxanthin (yellow) and degradation products of betalaines ( light brown ) may be present. Besides the colour pigments the juice or extract consists of sugars, salts, and/or proteins naturally occurring in red beets. The solution may be concentrated and some products may be refined in order to remove most of the sugars, salts and proteins.
